The fourth highly anticipated novel in the Highland Brides series by award-winning author Elizabeth Essex
How would you know your one true love, if you didn’t even know your own self?
A man stripped of his past
Ewan Cameron, 5th Duke of Crieff has his future carefully laid out. Heir to a great estate, he’s been betrothed to Lady Greer Douglas since childhood. After years of correspondence, the date is set—they will meet, marry and be happy. But on the way to his wedding, a vicious attack steals everything he holds dear—his home, his future, his bride, and his very self.
A woman robbed of her future
Lady Greer Douglas has been faithfully writing to her betrothed, the Duke of Crieff for ten years. Finally, the day she has waited for is at hand—but fate has unkind plans. When her wedding day turns into a funeral, Greer must leave the past behind, and embark on a future without her bridegroom.
While mourning her lost love, Greer is drawn to an injured stranger she encounters on the moor. Compassion leads to friendship, and friendship leads to love that reopens the doors to his shuttered memories. Convinced this man is the lost duke, she helps him embark on a journey to regain everything he has lost. But his would-be murderers lurk nearby, and every step into the past puts their lives in peril. Can they regain their future, without losing their reawakened love—or their lives?
A heart-rending tale of love, loss, and rediscovery.
Greer Douglas and Ewan Cameron were betrothed as children and have never met. They have developed a friendship and fallen in love through the letters they wrote to each other over ten years. Finally their wedding day has come. On the way to the wedding they stop to help a badly injured man. When is picked taken away by an old man, they continue to the castle. When they arrive, the family is informed (by Ewan’s cousin) that Ewan is missing and reported dead. Greer is devastated, but determined to find the truth about Ewan’s death – when, where, and why.
This story is packed with intrigue, excitement, and danger from the start. The story is told from the points of view of the hero and heroine through the letters (426) between them interspersed with the story narrative. I recommend this book. Greer and Ewan are great characters and their story is a grand adventure and a beautiful love story.
